Hundreds of trucks stranded at Torkham

Hundreds of trucks loaded with trade goods have got stranded at the Pakistan side of the Torkham border as Afghan authorities have refused them entry without route permit. Pakistani transporters at the border said that the Afghan government had imposed the restriction in response to a similar condition the Pakistani authorities had imposed for all Afghan drivers.

Local officials at the border said they were in constant touch both with their own higher authorities and the Afghan officials for an early resolution to the problem.
